AGENDA for SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 2011

NOTES: SHADOW STATE photonics-could up solar efficiency to 60%. Hydrogen station at the arctic circle!

Greetings and Introductions: Chapter President, John Gotthold, greets all attendees and asks each attendee to state their name and a short synopsis of their background and what they hope to learn by attending the meeting. 10 min.

1.      Hydrogen Transport:M-FIELD FC range extender. Green Routing-smart trip route planning may be best way to conserve fuel and extend range! BNL-platinum monolayer electrocatalyst. Hydrogen fueled 3 wheeler in India. Hempstead, Long Island, New Yoryk- wind turbine-electrolysis-hydrogen fuel-township vehicles- VOLA! SIM-LEI EV with 300 km range. Osaka FC car! REMY electric motors- power your bus.

2.      Hydrogen Technology: New solid oxide membrane can transform any fuel into electricity. New Solar paint! “SHADOW STATE” photonics could up solar efficiency to 66%! Kite Gen- high flying wind power. Nickel-hydroxide  improves H2 -water dissolution 10 X. Using Co2 to produce natural gas! Coal to liquid to hydrogen. SRNL Aluminum hydroxide-ALANE- 3 X better than batteries. Manganese photo catalyst-sunlight to waqter to hydrogen. WINDFLIP- new way to deploy offshore turbines. New wall solar material-11 % efficient. PAINT YOUR BUILDING WITH SOLAR. Polyethylenimine polymer to screb CO2 for smoke stacks!  New enzyme identified- responsible for oxygenation of the EARTH. Sun flower layout best for solar utility plants. Simplified hydrogen compression.

3.      Hydrogen Business: Ballard to FC power Brazilian buses. Kauai schools- free solar systems for power buy! Portable FC for consumer market.. Nuvera- mobility FC market strategy!. Wind Power Buyers? Black & Vetch- renewable energy to triple by 2036. Iran to connect power grid to Russia. Faqcebook to run on renewables. EPA rules for all power plants-will cause economic shut down of most coal plants.

4.      Government Support to Hydrogen:  Swiss resorts going TIR- Positive power. German Village makes $5.7m selling excess energy. DOE-$129m for fuel cells.  World society addicted to economic growth- how about hydrogen growth. MAP of US NATURAL GAS highway. Once completed for long haul trucks, adding reformers for hydrogen cars is a no brainer. Government procurement needed to drive renewables. UKH2Mobility.-business and gov program for 2014-2015 FC autos.

5.      Climate change and Oil Depletion:CHINA-sharp turn to solar. Iran-Straights of hormuz. Hydrogen fuel future=beneficial study! Electric bills up 3oo% in five years. Coal plants to be shut under new EPA ruleings. US to putput up to 10 MBPD  of petoleum liguids, by 2016. Permafrost thawing -increasing!! Formaldehyde-oxide-Criegee biradical that breaks down nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide-reducing global warming.

6.       AHASVC new initiatives. Volunteers to take over the web master job.? Fuel cells dismantled in Pheonix- does any one have a need for a large natural gas reformer?

7. HySolGenics update- HySolGenics, Inc. now has offices at 1925 Zanker Road-(at the corner of Brokaw and Zanker, San Jose) in the Universal Semiconductor building. A core part of the coming San Jose Alternative Energy Center. 5 kW electrolyzer stack component progress to be discussed at the meeting.
